Abstract

Therapeutic context can critically determine treatment outcome.1 Prior experience with a treatment is an important contextual factor that has been shown to modulate treatment efficacy.2,3 To date, this influence of prior treatment experience has been studied only within the same treatment approach. However, in clinical practice, treatments are often changed, particularly in case of failure. The aim of this study was therefore to investigate whether the effects of treatment history carry over from one treatment approach to another.
